I had some vibration Sunday coming in from riding all day. Bike shut off and oil/antifreeze shot out of overflow. Oil looks greeninsh. Hoping to take it in next week to see whats up. It just got 19,000 miles here a few weeks back. Hope its not related. Did you take yours in for the recall?

On my monster the engine changed a lot over the course of 7500 miles. For the first 2.5k it would vibrate my hands numb from 6k to redline. After that the "bad vibes" zone on the tach steadily narrowed down to 6k to 6.5k.

could be the natural frequency of the engine that gives that vibration at the right rpm.
